So, we learned to say “EAT” today... though it sounds more like “Eeeeeeee!” Then she gave me the universal expression of “Whassat? Kin i has some?” Coupled with the whole crawling beneath the table and appearing between my knees... 🤣🙄 Then at her own lunch, she ate a pretty big bowl of chicken with pumpkin and an entire cube of squash, a cube of green beans mixed with cauliflower, an entire cube of peas, six ounces of yogurt, an entire cup of mandarin oranges, a whole piece of cheese, and a handful of puffs and this kid is STILL GOING. 😱💸💸💸🙈 ... Hopefully it helps her sleep well... 🤷🏾♀️
After an amazing week last week, this week has been tough!
I've barely been allowed to put Esmé down today and the feeding the last few days has been ridiculous!! So I've been basically glued to the sofa all day either feeding her or with her asleep in my arms. Trying to enjoy the cuddles but let's be honest - being at home with a fussy baby all day is draining!
So many babies go from sleeping well to becoming tricky sleepers at around 4 months old; although I often find it can start creeping as early as around 10 weeks old.
This is often due to the massive development stage that occurs at this age, and this often effects baby’s sleep patterns.
When this does happen your baby’s ability to go to sleep depends on things they have come to associate with sleep! So during this time you may find you introduce new sleep associations, such as rocking or feeding your baby to sleep! So our actions can really play a crucial part in how our little ones fall asleep!Changes can happen really quickly if you are consistent with your actions! #sleep#developmentleaps#nightwakeups#sleepmethods#sleepplan#growthspurt#sleepcoach
This little man is going through a growth spurt. He’s been eating tons, crying tons, napping poorly and just wanting snuggles from mom and dad. We’re hoping this passes soon, cause we just want our happy little guy back. The best time for him is the morning when he wakes up after a good snuggle and then the day is tough from there. Going on day 4 tomorrow!
SOUL SEARCHING. A lot this year. Trying to detach from the expectations other people have of me and what pleases them. Stepping out from the shadow of other people who I let take center stage and put their needs ahead of mine. ❣️Instead taking time to expand my mind and my world. Playing with the edges instead of looking at the edge and taking one step back from it. ❣️Grateful for the love and support of my family and friends but also realizing I may not fit in the box they are used to me being in. ❣️Allowing myself to get vulnerable and go beyond previous borders and start to recreate myself based on what I really want and like. ❣️Changing is scary and exciting. Admitting what I want without getting caught up in the approval or judgment of others is fucking hard. ❣️But this is version of me will be the most real, the most happy, the most true to myself. The most fulfilled. The most ready to shine. And the most excited to share it with the people who will stay in my life and fully accept this version of me. ❤️ #staywoke#awaken#wakeup#phoenixprocess#rebirth#growthspurt#growth#evolve#newme#newlife#happinessproject#meditate#discovery

When you gotta snack between grocery stores😂 So lately I’ve had quite a few moms freaking out because they’re 1+ year old all of a sudden doesn’t sleep through the night and is wanting a bottle or to breastfeed. Remember your baby goes through stages, if your little one is going through a growth spurt, going back to a bottle or the breast is comforting and familiar, not a problem or regression. Growing pains happen, as well as waking up hungry in the middle of the night. In hindsight and beforehand, these ideas seem very understandable, but when it’s actively happening, it can stress you out! #hangintheremama#growingpains#growthspurt#solosleeper#weaning#toddlers#mamashelpingmamas#parenthoodunplugged

Mummies girl ❤️❤️ she’s having a hard time.. with teeth, growing, separation anxiety (yay) and trying to work out how to crawl. But she knows I can make it all better. Our babies trust us from day one, until they realise that with a little encouragement and sometimes tears they will get there. She turned 8months old today. 😫💕 #mybabygirl#8months#baby#growthspurt#safespace#mummy
My boo & I broke up last week. It feels a little like this. A⚡️jolt⚡️that sends you tumbling, and eventually you settle into a form of yourself that fits even better than before.
Anyone out there tumbling? It’s not easy but it can be exciting when you lean into it & trust it’s leading you somewhere better.
Not necessarily to someONE better (until you’re ready) — but to a new state of being even more in tune with yourself and not filtering your identity through another person. A reset. .
Relationships are teachers. They push your buttons to show you what you need to learn. Breakups are an honor because it means you’re graduating, growing, and becoming ready for the next set of life lessons.
Go easy on yourself. Rest. Breathe into any emotions you are experiencing. This moment has a lot to offer you. .
Bagaimana kita tahu bayi kita sedang mengalami growth spurt? Berikut ini adalah tanda-tandanya:
1. Bayi menyusu lebih sering dari biasanya, kadang bisa setiap jam atau setiap 30 menit sekali atau hampir nonstop.
2. Bayi lebih rewel dari biasanya, begitu rewel dan disodorkan payudara, bayi langsung mau menyusu. Mudahnya bayi lebih memilih “nempel” langsung pada Mamanya.
3. Bayi sering bangun tengah malam untuk menyusu. Bayi seakan mengerti bahwa produksi hormon prolaktin paling tinggi pada malam hari.
4. Gejala ini bisa berlangsung selama 2-3 hari, beberapa kasus ada bayi yang mengalami growth spurt sampai 1 minggu. Setelah periode growth spurt, bayi akan tidur lebih tenang dan lebih lama selama 1-2 hari, seakan-akan dia letih habis bekerja keras. -
Begitu bayi menunjukkan tanda-tanda seperti ini, suplai ASI Mama juga akan meningkat selama beberapa hari disesuaikan dengan peningkatan kebutuhan bayi. Waktu-waktu tertentu dimana bayi mungkin mengalami growth spurt yaitu selama beberapa hari pertama pasca lahir (ketika bayi sudah pulang ke rumah, pulang dari rumah bersalin), usia 7-10 hari, usia 2-3 minggu, usia 4-6 minggu, usia 3 bulan, usia 4 bulan, usia 6 bulan, usia 9 bulan atau lebih. Waktu-waktu ini tidak jadi patokan karena masing-masing bayi menunjukkan pola yang berbeda.
Life of a #violinteacher . . . music, schedules, all of the sticky notes, and a measuring tape. Because #growthspurt 🤓. Even though most instruments are the same size for adults and children (#piano ) string instruments are measured to a child - and need to be upgraded as a student grows. Keep an eye out because I’ll be posting tips on how to measure for a violin on the blog later today. #musiclessons#studentsgrow#upgrade#finearts#education
Usually bath times are our favourite, not tonight!!! 😭😭😭 Cried the whole time in the bath, cried when I got him out and cried when i cuddled and kissed him and tried to settle him, whilst milk is pouring all over us, cried when i dried him and dressed him (but that's normal, he likes to free the willy like his father 😂), cried when I offered a feed, then i walked away for 2 seconds to hang our towels up, come back and he's fast asleep!! •
